EOSC Synergy for Infrastructure Managers

The Synergy Infrastructure is distributed across multiple countries and different resource providers. Find out how to organize a Federated Cloud and what it offers.

Building Federated Clouds

Find here our online Handbook for Integration of resources in EOSC. The source-code is published on github [handbook-git]. Feel free to submit “merge requests” if you want to cooperate to maintain it uptodate.

We rely on the EGI Federated Cloud to deploy a federation of IaaS and Platform Cloud services.

Managing Resources

The technical solution to control resource allocation are the so-called Virtual Organizations (VOs), a concept that prove to be successful in Distributed Computing Grids. This corresponds directly to the concept of computing projects, that are well established in the High Performance Computing (HPC) world.

Secure Authorization and Authentication

The EOSC-Synergy services are all integrated with a common Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure (AAI). This enables using one common login to every service. Learn more about AAI architecture and AAI Policy related questions.

Accounting resource usage

Fine-grained accounting information is available in the EGI Accounting Portal to understand details how resources are used. The portal allows comparison of Computer Centres, Virtual Organisations and multiple resources over time.

Several EOSC-Synergy partners (CSIC, LIP, IISAS, CESNET, CYFRONET) have played a pioneering role in the conceptual design of the EGI Federated Cloud Infrastructure.

HPC Access

We enable HPC access via EGI Authentication and Authorisation. This allows using the full authorisation stack of EGI (Assurance, Entitlements, Virtual Organisations, …) on HPC resources.
